Website Workshop – More Details

Hey guys – this is an update on the WordPress workshop that I mentioned in an earlier blog post:
So there wasn’t enough interest to merit renting a space and doing a large-group class, but enough interest that I still want to be able to offer this workshop in some fashion.
My main goal is to be able to share this knowledge and skills with all of you, so I’m going to offer a modified workshop that you can schedule on an individual or group basis.
Basically, I’ll still cover everything the workshop would have covered (see below for modified details), but it’ll just be me, at your place, for an intimate & individual session.
For an individual, at your place, for 4 hours, I’m charging $120.
If you want to invite some friends, at your place (a maximum of 4 people total), it’s $180 total. So if there’s 4 of you, that’s only $45 each for a 4 hour workshop! This is good for those of you who were worried about funds.
If you’re still interested, email info@putontheglasses.com to set up a time.
